Ginger Vegetable Soup

I had been feeling under the weather. I couldn’t stomach anything. For me to not eat breakfast past 11am is a bad sign. So, I decided to gather some ingredients to throw them into a soup. Soups are an excellent way to get in nutrients you body needs to feel better. This took less than […]

Salt and Pepper Cucumber “Chips”

Summer time is here! So is BBQ time, get together time and SNACKING time! Think about when you go meet with friends for a BBQ. What kinds of snacks are typically available? If you said veggies and fruits, you are a rare one! Not to say chips and other “snacks” aren’t bad, but we always…

Wholy Guacamole

Avocados. They are quite amazing. Even more amazing than avocados, guacamole. Making your own guacamole may seem a little intimidating, however, it’s way more simple than you think! Here’s a pretty simple recipe I made using my food processor. It’s doable without one, but the processor makes it just so much more creamy! Ingredients 2…

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers are a fantastic food to make on a less busy day to use for lunches during the week! The key is to make them with a protein that is going to keep you full for a long time. Quinoa is your guy! You can even freeze the leftovers and use another day, or…

Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpea Stuffer

Things that make me happy…. I found purple cauliflower again!! That makes me a super happy person. Besides loving purple cauliflower, I also loves tacos. Taco salads, taco tacos, and just taco filling. So, I decided to make a mixture with cauliflower and some chickpeas for protein as a “stuffer.” This was really not difficult to…

Fresh Watermelon Salad

Freshhhhhh! My thoughts after having a bite of this delicious mixture of flavors. My co-worker brought a sample of a watermelon salad she had from home, minty+lemony, and it was delicious. So, I created a tweak for it. This salad is perfect for sides at lunch, get togethers and barbeques. I had some today for breakfast…

Sweet Potato Pesto Pasta

Craving pasta? This vegan, gluten free, healthy sweet potato pesto pasta will be a great choice for you and/or your family! I recently made some fabulous pesto and needed some ideas of what to put it on! First thought, zucchini noodles.

Avocado Pesto

Presto pesto! I’d been craving pesto lately for some reason. Maybe it’s because I’ve had a basil plant flourishing in my kitchen? Or, because of my brand new food processor wanted to be used? Whatever the reason, I was going to get some! While at the store grabbing some ingredients. I was checking out some…

Crunchy Cucumber Salad

We have all of these barbeques and get-togethers going on,  usually offering those potato/pasta salads loaded with crap. What kind of side salad can we make that’s healthy? I came up with this very simple cucumber salad that hits the spot! Have it on the side of a BBQ, with any meal, or simply as a snack…

Thick Cut Crispy Cumin Sweet Potato Fries

Tonight I was stumped on what to make. Thank goodness I bought a huge bag of sweet potatoes the other day to help me with deciding what to make.  I kind of threw this recipe together (per usual) and it turned out really damn good (if I don’t say so myself). I ate these on the side of cilantro-lime-quinoa with…

Grilled Red Potatoes

Summer times means grilling season for many of us! Grilling is a great way to cook healthy! Sadly, some cultures have created a slight problem with grilling–tending to put those unhealthy-high fat foods on the grill. Not that you can never grill a steak or sausage! But, let’s try to get those healthy foods in…
